secrets that very few people know about them. this is one man that can help us now. i deal with students from universities where they make documents and then ask me questions. i would suggest that we engage the students from our universities to come and learn about our system and then encourage our retirees to volunteer sometimes so they can share their experience. yesterday, i was in the park and i was listening to this professor from uc-berkeley who bring students here to talk about sfpuc and all of the politics, the bonding. i was really surprised that a professor from berkeley has taken it upon himself to share information like this, because as you know, commissioners, you do what you have to do, but what leads things to happen is politics. and our young people should know about all the politicking that goes on and how sometimes if you pay attention to the maintenance of our infrastructure it pays good dividends, and if you do not pay attention to the maintenance of our infrastructure then we have rapid issues. jon is a great guy in all the time i have known him. it is really said th

of manhattan and brooklyn and you can see pictures of this in front of us. into this toxic crowd ran firefighters and police and other first responders. first responders came from all 50 states to aid in the rescue and cleanup of the subsequent days. the environmental protection administration, e.p.a., despite ample evidence to the contrary kept falsely proclaiming that the air was safe to breathe. it wasn't. the terrorists caused environmental catastrophe but the federal government compounded the damage by telling people the environment was safe when it wasn't and now thousands of people are sick and in need of special care. we have a moral obligation to treat those who became ill and that's what this bill is all about. for eight years representative maloney and i supported a bipartisan basis by the new york delegation and others have worked to bring this bill to the floor. now it is finally time to pass it. time and again, as we move this bill through the legislative process, we've adjusted it, reduced its size and scope, limited its cost and made concessions to broaden the coaliti
